Event Dressing Inspiration…

A strange thing happens to the high street at this time of year. Suddenly everything is (a) black, (b) sparkly and (c) figure-hugging. Very often – this isn’t what we need or want. The outfit I turn to at this time of year is a little less ‘bling’ yet still feels special…

It’s my midnight blue velvet trouser suit. In the last month I have worn it for cocktails, a lunch, a dinner party, and a networking event. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Full Suit with halterneck silk blouse
Full Suit with fine merino wool roll-neck
Velvet Jacket with boyfriend jeans and white t-shirt
Velvet trousers with silk camisole and belted cashmere cardigan
Full suit with white tux shirt

When I bought this suit, over 5 years ago, there were very few options around. This season, there are plenty. Check out Reiss; Jigsaw; Bella Freud; Matchesfashion and Cos  – you’ll be spoilt for choice. And if a full-on trouser suit is not for you, invest in a velvet blazer and see the difference it will make to your wardrobe.

One of my greatest joys is helping clients see potential in their clothing. Do get in touch if you need help discovering yours. It would be a pleasure.

You’re very welcome
